48 Hours in Paris – Where to DineLike0

 

One more croissant please? Nope. That wasn’t the phrase I used the most, surprisingly during this 3rd trip to Paris. It was, ‘pass the bread please!’ and ‘I love cheese’. With endless bistros and brasseries, la France had a hold of me with the vino’s, the cheeses and surprisingly the Mediterranean food and the great company of new friendships. Here are the 4  places I wined and dined in 48 Hours in Paris.

Where to Dine in Paris

 

Le Grand Salon

Hilton Paris Opera recently opened its doors once again after an extensive renovation. Get ready to be amazed with a soaring of 46-foot high ceilings and hand-painted frescos dedicated to the Parisian Golden Age, Le Grand Salon is the hub for guests and Parisian people to mingle, connect, and savor the beautiful Belle Epoque surroundings. This sophisticated place offers a culinary escape regardless the time of the day.
Opening hours: 7.30 to 1am Mon-Fri, 10.30 to 1am Sat and 10.30am to 11pm Sun

Restaurant Lazare Paris

Right across Hilton Opera Paris is restaurant Lazare Paris. A bistro style with a twist. The restaurant has long bar with tables around it and our long rectangular wooden table with 22 of our friends  facing the open style kitchen. We ordered the Salade de haricots verts, artichauts à l’huile de noiset, Sélection de charcuterie fin,  Œufs de poule mimosa, au thon et au crab (my favorite!) Calamars sautés à l’ail et au piment d’Espelett with a main dish of Cabillaud cuit au plat, tomate, gingembre et basilic. Absolutely delicious and ended with Crumble de framboise.

Parvis de la Gare Saint-Lazare / Rue Intérieure, 75008 Paris, France

Nai Paris

La cuisine Libanaise. For the love of homos, kebbeh, labneh and grilled. Nai Paris is a family owned business that has been opened for 10 years and growing. I couldn’t believe I found it! Rumors has it that it is the best lebanese food in the country. Strangely enough, I was craving a little bit of home cooked food and was glad I found the last table for two right in the corner for lunch. Paul, who owns this hidden gem runs the restaurant with his wife and brother. It is the place to eat home cooked Lebanese food and has loyal fans and regular visitors from all over the world!

L’estaminet Au Marche Des Enfants Rouge

Right in the middle of the oldest covered market in Paris is L’estaminet Des Enfants Rouge. A lovely market setting and menu that changes every month with different daily dishes. A place to for cheese and wine during the day break, lovely brunch menus on Sundays and a great place to grab a bite with friends.

  • They say, reality is a projection of your thoughts. I’ve dreamed about sailing north of the arctic for years... I never doubted for a second that it would not happen ‘one day’ but, nothing every prepared me for what I’m experiencing on this trip witnessing the magic of the midnight sun!! I’ve seen and felt things I never imagined existed or at least only on @natgeotravel magazines. This is the start of my 3 day journey sailing in the arctic! 💫

I’m also very excited to announce our new partnership with @pukkatravels for our next @travelwithtjd #TravelWithTJD in October and now, you can join me too! Information will be up tonight on the link in bio!
  • I know escapism is real to so many of us... but you can’t escape yourself and, travel won’t be the answer, so learn to love every single weakness and strength you have because no matter where you go, your thoughts go with you... nothing will disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. 💫
  • There is something so incredibly special and cozy about boutique hotels that I love so much... like @constancehotels - Do you prefer large resorts or boutique properties?
  • We all have different reasons for forgetting to breathe... and most of us are breathing the best way we can... I think I’m ready to get back out there 💫
  • It’s the ‘have you seen the way he looks at her’ kind of love I have with you 💫
  • What do you see? It’s so easy to fall in love with landscapes and nature in Sweden. I know some of you have realized my insane fascination with Scandinavia but I just can’t help it. Maybe it’s because I am familiar with isolation and I embrace it so well... It keeps my creativity as fierce as ever and it never gets lonely. Maybe it’s because I love the adventure and photography so much... I’m not sure what it is. 
This is called The Mirrorcube - camouflaged mirrored walls reflecting the surrounding. I can’t wait to return!
  • This simply makes me smile! Happy Sunday everyone! Can you spot the baby giraffe? 😊
  • I’m sorting out my summer plans today and added Portugal again! I’m excited to be going back and exploring more landscapes, culture, food, sailing and the incredible nightlife! There is a whole article on my last trip and guides on my website! What are your summer plans?
  • I gave you a heart stronger than a thousand warriors... but it will take you years to learn that not everyone loves like you do... 💫
  • Not bad for a view outside my room window! She looks like she’s waiting for me to come out and play ☺️ - What do you think?
  • Looking back at the exact same time last year on a #TravelwithTJD team trip to Tokyo with @ritzcarlton - This was the view from my beautiful room. One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to! Have you been to Japan? I’ve got lots of articles and guides on the blog!
  • I spent my morning with @fourseasons worldwide team at @fsdubaidifc for breakfast and it was so wonderful to learn more about their new and existing projects, but here is a memory taking me back to Maldives. Isn’t the Maldives just an incredible place!?
